Define:/self/ – Exploring female identity

selfOrganized by guest curator, Erika D’Auria

May 15–October 1, 2014
MMA Pacific Street

Monterey has been graced with many great artists in its time, from the classics to the contemporary. Define:/self/ – Exploring Female Identity is a collaborative exhibition using art provided by young female artists from Monterey Youth Arts Collective. Twenty artists responded to the prompt, “What does it mean to be a female artist”, creating an eclectic multi media exhibition. The exhibition explores the idea of womanhood, self identity, and how the artists choose to define themselves. Photographs of the artists help provide a more intimate understand of the artist and their narrative.

 Define:/self/ – Exploring Female Identity was also created as a graduating senior Capstone project for California State University, Monterey Bay’s Visual Arts Department.
